University at Albany Speaker Series:

In 2008, UAlbany’s Student Association conceived and organized the “World Within Reach Speaker Series” to being world leaders and thinkers to campus.

The series has featured nationally-recognized icons including President Bill Clinton (Spring 2011), Earvin 'Magic' Johnson (2011), Bill Nye (Spring 2015) and most recently “Humans of New York” creator Brandon Stanton (Fall 2016).
